About this property

  • A unique and impressive country house most recently trading as a hotel but considered suitable for a variety of uses, subject to securing the necessary consents. The main building is located centrally within the wider grounds and therefore enjoys a high degree of privacy as well as a terraced patio area to the front leading down into mature garden grounds.

    The property, which was constructed in 1874, had been formed around two linked courtyards and offers a total of 17 bedrooms including owners accommodation (12 of which provide en suites) as well as 4 public rooms on the ground floor including an impressive drawing room and bar area. The property features a beautiful Victorian tiled entrance and hallway with period wood panelling, moulded cornices and original fireplaces and surrounds. Further accommodation includes office space, kitchen, laundry and wine cellar.

    There are also a number of granite outbuildings associated with the property and approximately 100 metres to the north of the main hotel there is an attractive walled garden with an adjacent kennel building. The latter may be suitable for redevelopment subject to securing the necessary consents
